Hello lovelies! I wanted to share a little something with you about this sleeveless coat, well honestly it wasn’t sleeveless.
A couple of months ago I ordered this black long sleeve coat along side with two other pieces, and to be honest I didn’t really like it because the sleeves were to short and the shoulders were puffy, I kept it hanging in my closet hoping one day it will be useful.
Last week I thought I’d give my wardrobe a makeover and get rid of the things I wont be wearing and on the other hand add some more key pieces. I noticed that I don’t have a black sleeveless coat and that a lot of my tops would look really good with one; so I added that to my “Wardrobe Makeover List” and kept in mind that I should get one ASAP, while still going through my wardrobe I found the black coat and a few thoughts came to me about making it useful and transforming it to a sleeveless coat.
I took a pair of scissors, thread and a needle and began cutting the sleeves off, I threaded the edges and added a little touch to the shoulders, and this was the result!
I hope you guys liked the final result and remember it’s always so fun to transform a piece you don’t like to one where you’ll end up wearing every single time!
Comment below and let me know what you guys thought of it. And if you feel like you need a wardrobe update I’m only one click away! Book your consultation now. 😉

Introducing the Straight Body Shape, the most common one, also referred to as the rectangular body shape. If you have a straight body then your hips and bust are most likely to be balanced and your waist isn’t very defined. I personally find this type of body the easiest to dress (other than the hourglass shape of course).
The best way to dress this type of body is to balance between dressing your upper part, with your bottom part and as usual define your waist.
Best Selection of Tops for a Straight Body Shape:
- Off the shoulder.
- Wide V or U neck.
- Belted waist tops.
- Embellished sleeves.
- Boat-neck tops.
- Flowing tops around the bust/shoulder.
Best Selection of Bottoms for a Straight Body Shape:
- Wide leg pants.
- Embellished pockets.
- Medium to low waist pants.
- Full skirts.
Happy styling loves! 😉
Knowing what body shape you are can help so much in figuring out what types of styles work best for you, to compliment your body type.
Today I’ll be guiding you in how to dress a Triangular Shaped Body (or as some call it The Pear). As a Triangular Body, your hips are larger than your bust and you have a nicely defined waist; so don’t be afraid to show that off!
Starting with the tops, since all the volume is in the hips we need to balance the body to give it the Hourglass Shape. The best way to do that is to add volume to the shoulders and to define the waist. So instead of having large hips you’ll trick the eye to make it seem like you have a balanced bust and hips with a perfect waist.
Best Selection Of Tops For A Triangular Body Type:
- Boat-neck tops, wide V or U necks.
- Off the shoulder tops.
- Tops with fitted waist.
- Bright colors and bold patterns.
- Tops with full or structured shoulders.
Best Selection Of Bottoms For A Triangular Body Type:
- Darker colors are best to minimize your lower half.
- A- Line skirts.
- Simple bottoms with no structured or embellished details.
- Lightly gathered skirts.
Don’t forget, ALWAYS define your waist for a great balanced proportion!
